KAB 2012 International Killi Photo Competition

The Killi Association of Bulgaria,(KAB), announces its Fourth Killifish Photo Competition.
We are very excited to present this competition in the field of digital images and hope to encourage international participation by giving enthusiasts the possibility to e-mail their submissions as file attachments.

1. Photography classes:
- Portrait - (There is the whole fish on the picture, also a macro close up…)
- Action - (There are mostly 2-3 fishes in breeding or kombat process)

2. Parameters for submitted digital files:
- Files format - JPEG
- Resolution - 1024x768 pix.
Images should follow these parameters approximately, allowing the vertical dimension to fall as per aspect ratio of the particular image. If images do not meet these size requirements, they will be resized by the personal of the Photography Judging Committee, in order to ensure image display during the judging process. Any names or signs on the files are forbidden!

3. The competitor must be the author of the digital file, even if the subject of the photo is not his property.

4. None of the photos must be published(printed) yet in some aqua-magazines/ bulletins. It doesn’t mean the all forum-sharing photos!

(Do not make an original yellow fin intensive orange or red!)

6. File name in the e-mail:

7. Number of entries allowed:

The name of the author of the used file will be acknowledged. If foreign editors express interest in the photos, they will be given the e-mail address of the author to discuss terms of use.

9. A checklist of submissions must occupy the body of the e-mail(s) accompanying the attached files, and may contain additional information about the fish and other pertaining information.
